There are many holidays and festivals celebrated by Buddhists people around the world each year, most of which commemorate important events in the life of the Buddha or various Bodhisattva’s. Buddhist holidays are joyful occasions. The Buddha Elephant Festival is also takes an important place in these. A festival day normally begins with a visit to the local temple, where one offers food or other items to the monks and listens to a Dharma talk.

The Buddha elephant festival is the big Elephant Festival celebrate by Buddha peoples each year. Buddha used the example of a wild elephant that is harnessed to a tame one to train to teach that a person new to Buddhism should be helped by an older Buddhist. This festival teaches for spreading love and worship all over. To mark this saying, Thai Buddhists hold an Elephant Festival on the third Saturday in November.
